Perform a basic squat With a Fitness Band to Strengthen the outer hips
BENEFITS: Squatting is a bodyweight strength training exercise that works the thighs, legs, and gluteals. Adding a medicine ball will add work to the shoulders.
INSTRUCTIONS: Place the fitness band above your knees. As you descend, press the band outward to work the hips. A thicker band provides more resistance.
VARIATION: To increase the workload, hold a medicine ball in front of you, at shoulder height with elbows straight.
